    Honestly, as much as I really love this boot, I think I would rather spend my money on a top drawer EG.

    +1. Top Drawers are amazing. But so are single order MTOs.

    I know there were/is a lot of GMTO action, but for EG, aside from some boots and Dovers, I thought there was not all that much diversity in model orders via GMTO came to fruition.

    Someone posted a pair of burgundy St James II cordovans a few weeks ago. Truly amazing stuff. GG has a certain magic appeal to it, I don't know if it's the tight waist or what but it is damn sexy.

    What is the recommended fit on the MH71 last? I am typically an 8.5 US.

    Thank you. Now I have to decide if I go with this or the st. James in vintage cherry. I am a little worried the cherry may have too much red...

    Cherry is quite red and unless you're trying to make a statement I would opt for something more conservative. Vintage Oak is a beautiful colour.

    St.James is one of G&Gs signature styles, and Cherry a signature color, no doubt a great choice. Can't go wrong with this new Chestnut either, at has so much more punch than the old Chestnut. Hard decision indeed. Chestnut would be considered slightly more conservative.
